  1. Your blog looks great! I know my young college kids needed just that kind of basic directions. My daughter once called for directions for mashed potatoes (with real potatoes.) Then told me that she made the same thing (chicken in the instant-pot and homemade mashed potatoes) three times that week - she was so excited to be able to fix a "real" meal.
  2. How far is Angel Fire, New Mexico? We have friends with a cabin there - they snowboard, etc. It's beautiful in the snow!! It looks like it's 12 hours from you. Hopefully there's something closer!!
  3. I heard back from my neighbor - he told me that they use a hitting net called the BowNet Big Mouth X. They set it up in front of the one car garage door (we have garages with a two car garage/one car garage split) and it basically covers the opening. And they hit off of a T - he said they just use a basic adjustable height T from Walmart. That's it. Super simple. It is probably not what you are looking for, but maybe it will be helpful for someone! They are big (adult sized) kids and seem to hit hard, but the balls don't fly all over the neighborhood, so I think it's pretty affective!
  4. I texted my neighbor and she is asking her son. I'll check back when I hear more!
  5. We have neighbors who have some kind of temporary batting cage in their garage. The boys are like 13 and 16 years old (so it's not a toy.) They have a net that they put across the front of the garage, but I'm not sure exactly the ball set up. I don't think they have a pitching machine, but it is possible, I guess. They could have a ball on a string kind of thing but I don't know. They use metal bats and a real ball (not whiffle) and it makes a good "nice-hit" ding when they are out. Let me know if you want more info, I can ask my neighbor what they use.
  6. No advice but just sympathy. I spent too much time with someone I love over the spring/summer - not living in the same house, but several times we spent one to three weeks together. I love her and enjoy being around her, but there was a point when I felt like I couldn't be in the same room with her. I'm sure my behavior was not great, but it's so hard to tell what is normal when you are trying really hard not to go crazy inside PLUS trying to keep within normal bounds of politeness to the very person that is making you crazy. We are both sort of quiet/nice people who have a hard time talk
  7. Thursday! ✅ tidy up ✅ kitchen clean up bedroom tidy ✅ violin lesson ✅ make sure ds gets his laundry going ✅ homework ✅ milk/granola/bread ✅ think about dinner?? I felt like I didn't get much done today, but I was able to finish a study/paper and do some basic housework!
  8. So exciting! He's lucky to have you!! I hope it is a smooth transition!
  9. I'm taking several online classes and they tend to have things due Wednesday and Saturdays. So I have several things to finish up for today! And somehow I was not on the ball Monday and Tuesday so I have more to do today than usual... ✅ Math videos ✅ Study/quiz/test ✅ Discussion ✅ Paper(s) ✅ Post office Tidy up ✅ Fold clothes ✅ Tikka Masala for dinner self pedi water x x x ✅ skate around the block with ds
  10. Last year about this time I listened to a This American Life story about Human Growth Hormone - it was an interesting listen, there are 3 stories and I feel like it was the last of the three - Small Things Considered. I am not quite 5'2" and my youngest daughter is just over 5' tall. She is an adult and doesn't seem too small - she looks like a real adult. She had a very best friend in elementary/middle school who was 6 feet tall by about 5th grade and they didn't look strange together. She learned how to drive in her dad's full size '99 Chevy Truck! I don't feel like her height hol
  11. Tuesday! So much to do and I'm avoiding it by making lists 😃 I hope it's okay to just join in with these posts. I have in the past but it's been a while. We had covid here at my home and though we have been released from quarantine since friday and free of symptoms for more than a week, I have barely left the house. I have some errands today and will be careful to mask/sanitize for others, but it feels a little weird (as my daughter said - release the kraken!) My husband was back to work immediately after he was cleared but it has been nice to not have to get back out too quickly.
  12. Totally on a different line, but what about a little necklace? I love these little disks and they are about the same price as a basic pedi! https://www.madebymary.com/collections/necklaces/products/evie-charm-stacker# My daughter is finishing yoga instructor training this weekend, and I just ordered this cutie for her: https://www.madebymary.com/collections/pause/products/inhale-exhale-disc-necklace-5-8 It's a little more than the first link, so more like a mani pedi! haha!
  13. We rarely use them. I have two boxes in the open living room/dining room but they are the same ones from when we moved in over a year ago. I think we just don't have runny noses very often. I keep a mini pack in my purse and that tends to get used more, but mostly because my eye get a little weepy in the car - I think it's the wind from the ac. No real allergies.
  14. I'm sure you don't mean that the sacrifices we all made this summer meant nothing! I mean, that feels almost hopeless to say that we learned nothing from the summer? I'm sure we are not the only family that went to great lengths to provide a safe outdoor wedding that only 16 people were allowed to attend... I hope that there was a reason for that, right?!? 😀 In my area we saw higher numbers Mid July to Mid August but the numbers dropped way off in September but are rising again now. We were told that it was thanks to people doing a better job of masking and staying home that we were able to
